The contact asked the club's leaders not to be included in the squad for the match, and the "RMC" published the reason for this - PSG went up to play with a shirt with the colors of the rainbow, and Gay does not want to wear the uniform that expresses support for the proud community.
The Senegalese midfielder and his associates declined to comment, but when his coach Mauricio Pochettino was asked about it he replied: "Idrissa traveled with us to Montpellier, but for a personal reason had to withdraw from the squad. It is not due to injury."
As part of marking the day of the fight against homophobia that took place this coming Tuesday, the French league decided as early as 2019 that that week the teams would express sympathy with the fight.
Also last season Gay missed the game where the team went up to play in the LGBT community support shirts, when then the official cause was intestinal inflammation.
